About Humairia

Hello future student/parent!

My name is Areefa. Thank you for visiting my profile and being interested in learning more about me. You can say I have quite a unique background with qualifications in both media-arts and science. I earned my 1st BA in Biology (major) from Kean University and then my 2nd BA in Media Studies (Film and Video Production) from University of North Carolina at Greensboro (UNCG). I earned Magna Cum Laude in both Degrees. I believe in working smarter, not harder, towards your goals. That is why I love teaching because I think knowledge is supposed to be shared.

Right now I am offering one-to-one tutoring in Media Studies (Film and Video Production) and English as a 2nd Language. I have real-world experience as a freelance Videographer and a Video Editor. My very 1st student film was accepted at the Ava Gardener Film Festival and after that I have co-directed and edited different types of Video projects. I have also volunteered as a camera operator at WLXI (TCT Channel).

Now I also teach ESL (English as a 2nd Language) and help with TOEFL preparation. I passed my TOEFL test on the very 1st attempt as I had a good tutor: my big brother (so I understand the importance of individual attention). I was accepted at several colleges with my TOEFL scores and quite honestly it did not take me more than just a couple of months of preparation. And after that I took many ESL courses in college and did very well in those. Eventually I did so well in all my ESL classes my adviser recommended me to take English classes with regular native speakers of English during my Undergraduate years. I am the youngest of my siblings from an immigrant family. So I have personal experience in ESL learning.

I have worked with students from teens to adults. I pay careful attention to a student’s weaknesses and strengths and so I customize my teaching style according to the student and the type of subject.

I love to teach subject areas I really enjoyed learning myself as a student as I think that is the key to effective tutoring. I hope you will consider me in helping you with your subject needs. You will be satisfied with the results.

Hope you are having a wonderful day.

PS: Very soon I will be tutoring Science (Biology) Lessons too. So stay tuned for that.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Study Skills

I am really interested in being a tutor for Study Skills based on the following qualifications:
I am a scholar (academically gifted). I have two BA degrees (graduated with Honors in both) and have also completed one year in Graduate School (4.0 GPA).
Even during college I have been able to manage time for my parents (shared household chores/tasks with other family members) and also time for school. I have never neglected one for the other.
Time management and organization is one of my strongest skills. For everything I do I keep notes, planners, schedules and folders.
I know how to avoid distractions and develop good study habits by following a routine/schedule.
I know how to have time for family, friends and school/work through discipline and balance.
I know I can help any student who is having difficulties managing time, organizing work and developing study habits by teaching him (or her) what I know and have followed. I can customize and prepare a schedule or study plan based on the student’s specific need.

Video Production

I graduated from UNCG in Media Studies (Film and Video Production Concentration) with honors (Magna Cum Laude). I love Videography. It is like bringing your imagination to life. I can teach correct camera angles,camera movements, projection,camera placements,editing, production management etc with individual care and make the lessons fun too. I really want to teach this subject as I really love this. I have real world experience in addition to academic qualifications.

Beyond Expectations! — Humairia is an excellent tutor. She has a lot of patience, and she is very thorough while explaining a concept. She also very quickly adapts her teaching style according to a child's learning style. My daughter was struggling with ACT Science before I hired Humairia. My daughter was even tutored by well known Test Prep tutors previously, with no significant change in score. But her score increased ...
